Biography

Herrera was born in Guarambaré.

He played for Club Nacional of Paraguay and for several Spanish teams. While playing for the Paraguay national football team he led the team to win the 1953 Copa América against Brazil and was named the best player of the tournament. He later played one game for the Spain national football team in 1957.

As a coach, he managed Spanish teams (Elche CF and Valencia CF among them) and Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan. He coached Juventus from 1964 to 1969, winning one scudetto in the 1966/67 season and one Coppa Italia in the 1964/65 season. Herrera ranks second in most games as a Juventus coach with 162 (Giovanni Trapattoni is first with 402 games).[2]

As the coach of Internazionale, he led the team to a second-place finish in the 1969/70 Serie A season.
